Newt Gingrich: Obama May Hold ‘Kenyan, Anti-Colonial’ Worldview: [Alert: Code language for a “rebellious ni**er” follows.] “What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]?”
President Obama and his PR team did “con” the public during the last campaign – thus criticizing and lambasting what has taken place since then is appropriate, within warranted dissent and protest. But, this level of endless “pals around with terrorists” counter-campaigning from the far-right represents the lowest level of gutter slime. Obviously, the republicans are so mad in their quest to return to power (a power Obama has given them anyway by means of appeasement, and by being a Blue Dog champion) that they will never stop their talking points propaganda charade/parade – no matter what it takes.
The following related headlines (and a link) further represent how far they are (ACTually) willing to go in fomenting hysteria:
GOP Members Were Pushing Me To Advocate ‘Civil Uprising’
Rick Perry Won’t Give Up On Secession / Texas Secession Now
Another fair and balanced summary: (It would be “authentically dishonest” to summarize them, and their goals, in any other way.)
“I think [they] worked very hard at being [people] who [are] [immoral], [unreasonable], [extreme], [rigidly polar], transparent, [and] accommodating [to fellow neocons, regardless of offense] – [all] of which [is] true.” “In the [Pravda] tradition, [they were just] being the [people] [their puppet masters] needed [them] to be in order to achieve the position[s] [they] needed to achieve.”
Chuck Norris: “What does it take to get Gina and I off our ranch in Texas. An act of Congress? No Way. What it takes is God or Glenn Beck.” Glenn Beck: “You can’t convince me that the founding fathers wouldn’t allow you to secede.” And, let’s not forget: Palin Pals Around with Secessionists:

The Washington Post’s publishing of complete propaganda from Peter G. Peterson (Fiscal TImes: “Support Grows for Tackling Nation’s Debt”) is another critical example of the end of all objective credibility within our predominant media landscape. This level of boldness makes it undeniably clear that the Ministry of Truth’s example, regardless of its ultimate immorality, is one now wholly embraced by the majority of the Fourth Estate. “Have you left no sense of decency?”

Bob Cesca: “I’m pissed off at health care reform.” (Well, maybe it’s more like frustration?) “I’m pissed off that President Obama ‘thanked’ the independent senator from Connecticut even though the senator nearly killed health care reform this week.” (But, I won’t go any further in criticizing the President — who campaigned on “If a mandate was a solution, we could try that to solve homelessness by mandating everyone buy a house” — even though he set the stage for this outcome with sabotaging statements, after the election, like “the Public Option is just one sliver,” has refused from the beginning to stand up for anything remotely progressive, and, was still coddling other corporate sellout senators after they repulsively propagandized the entire nation with “Death Panel” assertions.) “I’m pissed off at the Senate,” “cable news,” “Rahm Emanuel,” and “the Republicans.” (Yet, I’m not going to allow my positive view to be swayed by reality.) “I’m pissed off that I can’t, in good conscience, allow my anger to coerce me into believing that we should ‘kill this bill.’” (Unlike Rep. “Is This the Best We Can Do?” Kucinich, Dr. Howard Dean, Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi, and Michael Moore, I refuse to make a “final straw” stand – no matter how far this goes.) (Like the former Single-Payer champion Rep. Anthony Weiner, who transformed into a dissembling preacher for the administration,) “I have no other choice but to settle for what is. For now.” (True, I could make other choices, like not putting lipstick on pigs. Regardless, I will hold out for anything that passes, and call it a win.) “Lack of insurance,” “medical bankruptcies and deaths” will be overcome. (How? By mandating that everyone buy private policies [“it makes them criminals if they don’t”] — which they cannot afford Now — or, especially Later). Let us not accept pure spin, while we’re being sold out, as “the good.” Let us not forget that what was absolutely possible — in a present tense, is now referred to as “the perfect” — in a past tense.

Partial Reality: Howard Dean: “This is essentially the collapse of health care reform in the United States Senate. Honestly the best thing to do right now is kill the Senate bill, go back to the House, start the reconciliation process, where you only need 51 votes and it would be a much simpler bill.” Corporately-Compromised Response: Sen. Durbin: “I disagree with Dr. Dean. I think if he would sit back and look at 31 million Americans who would have health insurance as a result of this bill. How do you say to them: ‘Sorry you can’t have health insurance. We think this bill can be better.'”
Yes, “31 million [additional] Americans . . . would have health insurance” – because, as voiceless and powerless serfs, they would be Compelled into buying Private Plans/Coverage. Right now, you could say to them: “Sorry you can’t have health insurance” – because you cannot Afford it. And, when we are done, it will cost even more. Yet, that’s not a problem with the Corporately-sponsored Senators or Representatives. That’s your problem, “because, hey, [they’re solving] the health care crisis! Everyone will have health care!” No Single-Payer. No Public Option. No allowance for people between 55 and 64 to buy into Medicare. No competition for private insurers. No re-importation of drugs from Canada (because of another secret White House deal with Big Pharma). Then, finally, Senator “I can be bought, often” Lieberman and his allies can be pleased with the outcome. “Is This the Best We Can Do?” Again, no. But, since a majority of the New Majority have revealed themselves for what they actually are, and who they really serve, we can take a step back and see more Truth of how “the meek” and their circumstances are regarded by the elite. Mantra: Kill the Health Care Bill, Save 31 Million. Kill the Health Care Bill, Save 31 Million.
Postscript (as an Open Letter): Senator Lieberman: “I think my colleagues know . . . that I’ve been opposed to a government-created, government-run insurance company.” Why do you hate Medicare, Sen. Lieberman? Is it because of the “Socialistic” focus on providing medical insurance as well as prescription drug coverage for people who are older, and/or those who have certain disabilities – like Veterans? Would you prefer them to be subject to “personal responsibility” mandates – even if the result was exponential agony on the streets? Does this quote from Darwin often ring in your mind? : “We must therefore bear the undoubtedly bad effects of the weak surviving and propagating their kind.” Why do you love private (corporate) insurance monopolies – whose focus is not on providing health care, but on denying as much treatment as possible and on canceling policies – according to a Wall Street profit model? Did you also envy Enron? Further, did it bother you that so many lost their life savings in that worldwide scam? Or, was the latter plundering their own fault for not being the fittest at the top of the chain in a dog-eat-dog survival game (pyramid)? Why do you hate regular people (us)? Is it because we did not pull up our bootstraps far enough to have stored $3 million in the bank for medical emergencies? Or, is it because our stature in life was preordained – according to you and your kind (the elect, prosperous, and chosen), whose laws are sealed within Social Darwinism?

“Aetna Forcing 600,000 to Lose Coverage in Effort to Raise Profits”: “Officials at Aetna announced that in an effort to improve on a less-than-anticipated profit margin in 2009, they would be raising prices on their consumers in 2010” (“ensuring that each customer is priced to an appropriate margin”). Thank you, President Obama, Sen. Majority Leader Reid, Speaker of the House Pelosi, Corporate Blue Dogs, and all other appeasers, for what we can now look forward to – on a never-ending basis. Thank you for, during a Second Depression, delivering us right into the hands of these vultures. Thank you for giving us an additional (mandatory) monthly bill – and basing the yearly cost on spending up to 8% of our income – while still proclaiming that no new taxes will be imposed on those making under $250,000. Thank you for, like the “Healthy Forests Initiative” and the “Patriot Act,” making “Affordable” the first word of the “Health Care for America Act.” Thank you for all the faux posturing, then purposely taking us “from Single-Payer to a Public Option to a fragmented Option (‘Opt-Out’) to a Trigger” (or even further, to a “Hammer”). Thank you for, with a new Majority, accomplishing exactly what the republicans under Bush would have rammed through – had they been on a mission to “reform” health care (you know, just like they “reformed” overtime and the Justice system?). Thank you for proving to us that, especially in the U.S., corporations rule and control policy – regardless of who holds the greatest number of seats. But, most of all, thank you – for helping those of us who still had Hope to be able to finally see the True Light.
Update: Not even a “Hammer.” Not even a buy-in to Medicare if you are 55 – 64. Since there will mainly, and only, be an Individual Mandate – citizens can be assured that businesses all across the nation will take advantage of this by dropping their coverage as a means to push them toward their new “responsibilities” (while further solidifying bottom lines).

True and “minitrue”: For many years the public was smothered from the utmost abuses of those who wished to “doublethink” them into “perpetual” political, ideological, and spiritual wars. A specific goal was to obfuscate reality to such a point where the common people would end up following each shifting wave – blindly. They would be kept so caught up in manipulated emotions that fact-based/knowledge-seeking instincts would be overridden. Thus, the targets would never discover their primary weakness, or realize a controlled blindness. Every previous boundary of objectivity and decency would be surpassed. Truth was to be redefined and legally-opinionated incessantly – with a premeditation toward society’s eventual acceptance of the “minitrue.”: “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality . . . we’ll act again, creating other new realities. . . . We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.” Even regarding nonpartisan issues, instead of instilling wholesome certitude and fortitude in the populace, the most obscene accusations would be imparted to incite a never-ending cycle of Fear: “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.” Later, the evolutionary echoes continued to a crescendo: “Well, Mayor, how are you going to feel when it’s your daughter that’s kidnapped at school by a terrorist?” And finally, it culminated in an atmosphere where, for many unknowing multitudes, their “Freedom” had indeed become their (hidden) “Slavery.”
